Is there any other beauty trend that cycles faster than lipstick styles? Matte lips were once the top favorite before they got dethroned by glossy ones, but the scene also constantly comes up with new makeup looks to inject fun into our lipsticks: ombré, metallic, satin, ever sheer…
This season, undone beauty is taking over. After all, a perfect red lip isn’t the most practical when you’re celebrating the holidays with endless glasses of wine and second and third helpings at Christmas buffets. A feathered lip would be the better choice.
To achieve this look, take inspiration from the French girls who put this trend on the beauty map: They are all about how the natural effect of the feathered lip complements the skin tone. Ready to rock this trend? Here are a few products you need to pull it off.
Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Lip Tint
With the cutest popsicle packaging, this is an easy choice. It leaves a lightweight stain on your lips but still keeps them hydrated with its water-gel formula. An added bonus is the soap berry extract which is high in minerals and vitamins, perfect for keeping your lips healthy while achieving the trend of the season.
Careline Lip and Cheek Tint
This oil-free formula promises a non-streaky wash of color on your lips. The line carries one shade in berry red, which has already achieved holy grail status in the local beauty community for that easy My Lips But Better look. The best part? It’s dual purpose, as it can also be used as a blush. Talk about effortless!
BLK Cosmetics All-Day Lip and Cheek Water Tint
What’s unique about this tint is how it promises long-lasting wear. You can blend it to achieve just the right intensity of color to pull off the just-bitten effect. Choose the between a magenta or a deep red for a no-fail feathered red lip look, or be a little subtle and opt for the pink or fuschia shade.
